Classes Should Include Mandatory Bathroom Breaks

Eryana Champion

At Locust Grove High School many students have to use the bathroom multiple times a day. We should have mandatory 10 minutes of bathroom breaks each day in 2nd and 4th period. Many teachers say that we should use our 6 minutes between classes to use the bathroom, but most teachers write students up when going to the bathroom between classes for being tardy when most of the time bathrooms are locked, or there are many people using them and can’t wait. Half of the ISI students are in there because they are tardy and they sometimes count it as skipping. It should be a requirement for the teachers to take us to the bathroom.
